Breitbart.com: Citizens United: America's Border Crisis Is A Result Of Our Leadership Crisis
On Tuesday, Citizens United launched a video calling on President Barack Obama to deploy the National Guard to the southern U.S. border.
“President Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi are in complete denial when it comes to the illegal immigration crisis on the southern border,” said David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United. “The National Guard must be deployed to work with the U.S. Border Patrol to help secure the border immediately. America is a nation of laws, and existing immigration laws need to be enforced if America is to remain a sovereign nation.”

Cagle.com: Standing With Israel
Two prime examples of how American influence has deteriorated under President Obama include what we have seen over the last few weeks in the Middle East and the all-out war between Israel and Hamas. Our foreign policy is in shambles because President Obama would rather let others take the lead when it is American leadership that is essential to finding solutions to an ever more dangerous world. The Israeli government, led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, looks like it has lost faith in the Obama Administration, just like a majority of Americans have. Can you blame them?
Let’s just briefly look at what President Obama and both his Secretaries of State (Hillary Clinton and John Kerry) have achieved in regards to the damage done to our relationship with one of our most important allies in the Middle East – Israel. Three years ago, President Obama suggested that Israel should go back to its 1967 borders. A statement which brought a quick rebuke from Netanyahu saying Obama’s statement was “indefensible.” A member of the Israeli Knesset even said, “Israel will not pay [Obama's] private tuition as he tries to understand the essence of the conflict.”
That brings us to where we are today. Israel is under constant threat from Hamas due to their ability to launch rockets indiscriminately into Israel. These rockets can hit a majority of the citizenry in Israel and when a rocket is launched, Israelis only have seconds to seek shelter. Thanks to the much vaunted “Iron Dome” these rockets are often intercepted before they are able to do physical harm…but some get by. The psychological harm on the people of Israel is unknown. Could you imagine being under constant threat from rocket fire? Would Americans sit idly by if a foreign terrorist organization kept on firing rockets into the country? The answer to both questions is a resounding NO.

Breitbart: When A Commander-in-Chief Stops Caring
Of late, the Obama Administration and hypocrisy have become synonymous. For a president who loves to pretend his policies and ideas are always in favor of middle-class workers, Obama can’t seem to help himself when it comes to attending fundraising events put on by wealthy liberal elites. Yes, all presidents raise money for their political party, but Obama has taken fundraising to a different level—appearances be damned.
It is amusing that the same Super PACs Democrats are trying to make unconstitutional are the very thing that Obama is constantly spending his time focusing on helping. Similarly, this Administration has absolutely zero interest in remaining transparent throughout these numerous fundraising events. For President Obama to claim, “This is the most transparent administration in history,” is simply hyperbole. President Obama continues to make these $25,000 per-plate fundraisers closed-off to the press. In claiming transparency in this Administration, the President is not only being dishonest but purposely deceitful.
Obama and the Democrats’ continuous attacks against Citizens United’s Supreme Court free speech victory in Citizens United v. FEC has recently, once again, been placed front and center. Senate Democrat leaders are currently imposing a full-court press trying to pass a constitutional amendment to upend the Citizens United decision and the First Amendment rights it reasserted (this attempt, like many others before it, will go down in flames).

Cagle Post: Deploy The National Guard To The Southern Border
More time has passed and still the President has done absolutely nothing to deal with the crisis on our Southern border. There is still no set plan to stop the thousands of people flooding our border each day, and there is no end in sight because of President Obama’s refusal to take action.
This week, my organization Citizens United launched a petition that calls on President Obama to deploy the National Guard to our Southern border. It boils down to this: millions of illegal immigrants are already living and working in the United States, not paying taxes and enjoying a multitude of benefits – courtesy of the hardworking American taxpayer. Therefore, throwing thousands more illegal immigrants at an already out-of-control problem is simply ludicrous.
Politicians and faceless bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. refuse to enforce the law, secure the border, or be honest with the American people about the totality of this problem. As a direct result of the policies and statements of Barack Obama and his Administration, the situation has now completely spiraled out of control.

Michelle Malkin - The Left’s dark money managers: Meet Philip Gara LaMarche
Philip Gara LaMarche is a secretive political operative who funnels billions of dollars from undisclosed donors to nonprofits and astroturf groups. But you won’t hear unhinged Harry Reid railing Queegishly about him on the Senate floor. Why?
Here’s why: LaMarche is a militant leftist philanthropist. He’s a protected elite — Columbia University grad, former ACLU leader and Human Rights Watch official — with ready access to the White House. He and the left’s other dark money managers preach transparency and openness, while plotting behind closed doors to secure power at every level of government.
LaMarche currently heads the shadowy Democracy Alliance (DA). In internal documents obtained and published this month by John Hinderaker of the Power Line blog, the group currently describes itself as the “center of gravity” for the progressive funding world. DA enrolls wealthy liberal “members” who coordinate and finance a web of at least 132 left-wing groups. Though some of their members’ and partners’ identities have been exposed, DA takes great care to promise a cloak of donor secrecy “to provide a comfortable environment for our partners to collectively make a real impact.”

Breitbart.com: Keep Up The Fight For Border Security
Another week has gone by, and Democrats have yet to do anything except suggest our government spend more money to “solve” our current border crisis. Every day more and more immigrants are entering our country illegally, and every day, our president wants to talk about anything but our gigantic domestic policy crisis. None of this is by accident.
Earlier this week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) declared our Southern border “secure” and rejected calls to solve this crisis by deporting the thousands of illegal immigrant minors who are flooding our border. Despite this outrageous claim by Senator Reid (which is easily disprovable with one Google search), the mainstream media continues to sit on their hands and refuses to push back by simply stating the obvious. This is sadly just another example among a long list of failures by the press during crises in this country. They continue to insist on remaining silent on the important issues to protect the failing Obama presidency.
Not to be outdone, House Democrats have been saying America’s “doors are open,” and Nancy Pelosi labeled the current illegal immigrant crisis as an “opportunity.” Of course, for Democrats, this is an opportunity; an opportunity to continue to grow government and to have another reason to spend more of our tax dollars on a dependent group. This is a manufactured crisis created by Democrats, for Democrats.

Cagle Post: The Endless Wave Of Illegals
“The number of illegal immigrants apprehended at the border in the past nine months is more than double last year’s total.” This is the crux of the crisis we are dealing with at our Southern border right now. A seemingly endless wave of unaccompanied illegal immigrant minors are flooding the Rio Grande Valley, telling border agents that there are thousands who are still coming.
The men and women who are responsible for securing our border are now spending their time processing the 60,000 and counting illegal immigrants who have made their way to our border with Mexico over the course of the past nine months. It all boils down to this simple fact: these people know our border patrol agents are powerless to stop them because we have a President who has no interest in enforcing the law. So long as that is the case, they will keep coming.
Not only does the President have no intention of stopping illegals from entering the United States, he is sending a clear signal to those crossing the border to come on in by requesting $3.7 billion to fund “emergency” spending to assist the unaccompanied illegal immigrant minors. This act doesn’t just make it clear that the President of the United States has no plans to deal with, or stop this crisis at the border, but now he is spending even more taxpayer dollars to force those who are already struggling in the Obama economy to literally pay for his misguided and dangerous agenda – yet again.

Breitbart.com: Rep. Jim Jordan Keeping Pressure On The IRS
On Wednesday, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen was once again questioned by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Koskinen was brought before the committee this time to explain newly released emails from April 2013 which show Lois Lerner had a keen interest in knowing that IRS instant message correspondence would not “automatically save as the standard.”
Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan delivered a very effective line of questioning to Koskinen who withered away on yet another one of Lerner’s apparent missteps.
Jordan took Koskinen to task over his previous statement that “Lois Lerner was doing everything in her power to recover the lost emails from 2011,” because now it seems to be becoming more clear by the day that she in fact did the exact opposite. Why was Lois Lerner so concerned about who might end up reading her electronic correspondence? In recently uncovered emails, Lerner apparently was worried about Congress’ ability to obtain copies of emails and instant messages, particularly in 2011, after the Ways and Means Committee Chairman David Camp sent a letter stating his worry that specific conservative groups were being targeted.
